The Sunday Post (#22) and Showcase Sunday (#8)
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Showcase Sunday is hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie and the Story Siren. They're a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, highlight our newest books and see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, or bought.

Books I added to my shelves
From the library I got:
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - yes, I got this a few weeks ago, but didn't manage to read it before it was due back at the library, so had to reserve it again!
Second hand, I bought:
Sleeping Murder, The Moving Finger and The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz
Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf - I already own a copy, but the cover of this version is lush
And finally, not quite a book, but I'm putting it here because it's a notebook. I got the following Hogwarts notebook/journal when I went to the Warner Bros. tour.
